Department of Physics Grants Master's Degrees

The U of M's Department of Physics is one of 24 nationally that averaged five or more master's degrees in the classes of 2010, 2011 and 2012 combined. These departments were responsible for granting 64 percent of all exiting master's degrees awarded. Full Article Link

Society of Physics Students

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) hosted a trivia night coupled with a poster presentation in the UC River Room last month that far surpassed their expectations. The trivia game was emceed by Dr. Robert Marchini and included questions of General Knowledge, Science, and Memphis Trivia. During the half time the students presented a poster session to show the research they had been doing in the Physics department, as well as tables with physics demonstrations. Full Article Link
